that u.s. officials suspected the former guantÁnamo bay detainee played a role in the attack on the american diplomatic compound in benghazi and are planning to designate the group he leads as a foreign intelligence -- why do they need to designate his group is a foreign --'s. >> guest: this is a group that has been acting with one of the militia organizations in libya. i think there are still some question about what his role if any was personally in the attack on benghazi but the significance of designating the organization that way is that we can use different financial instruments to go after their financing. it may have implications in terms of the status that we focus on them from a security point of view in terms of travel restrictions. so it will basically put heightened restrictions and allow us to use certain tools that we can't use without that destination. it is significant. i don't know that it tells us in and of itself much about its role, the role of that group in benghazi on that day but it does mean we consider that group very much a threat. >> host: james. i

directly with iran on behalf of the u.s. and other major world powers. for more, we're joined live in the studio by our middle east analyst. welcome to the program. first off, has there been progress on the nuclear program in iran? can you fill us in also on what is likely to have been agreed on ? >> i think there has been progress. i believe the american and european statements today, but as it seems their hand was forced by the iranians. it was the foreign minister in tehran who came up with the news , and i think that is quite problematic, to talk about negotiations while they are still going on. >> what about the timing of this? could we soon see something that looks like a deal, something that could at least be signed? >> at least the iranians believe in it. i do not believe in the final agreement right now, after this history of nearly 35 years of hostilities between the americans and iranians, who are the main players. it's not the europeans and not the russians. i rather believe that we will see several interim agreement in the coming years, while both parts win trust, and

us out throughout the day at aljazeera.com. created wit for the u.s. in syr. one, if the u.s. intention is to support the syrian uprising how can it be translated away from a victory for al qaeda? >> the position has changed since 2011 in syria because of the rising of opposition groups. when ayman al zawahiri has to plead for the situation, that is not the sign of a unified organization. i discount these guys being unlike core al qaeda. bin laden would not have had to plead. a good two-thirds of the liberated territory is now controlled by extremists and the united states is simply not interested in supporting them or furthering their goals or allowing them to take ore damascus. so although the congress has pressed president obama to arm the rebels, we haven't seen anything serious on that scale. and i think that likely, the u.s. will do what it did in the case of the algerian civil war which is just keep hands off until it subsides. >> okay but brian do these pleas that juan is talking about do they fall on deaf ears or do you suspect they might get some action and unify so

improved transit of goods to people here in north america. many people here in the u.s. have been asking the three governments update nafta taking into account the reality for example of the recently energy reform in mexico. so i would ask the three of you are you willing to update nafta or reopen it and secretary kerry to reopen nafta formally and secretary kerry especially for you, how do you respond to those who believe that at some point a u.s. should include canada and mexico in negotiations if only to avoid future problems with the nafta and whether not you agree with the europeans. >> i invite her guests to address this also, over the last 20 years as i mentioned we have developed this incredible network of. agreements in the western hemisphere and we have long wanted to open up those benefits. i think that's stepping up all of this to the tpp is a very critical component in moving the next tier post-nafta. i don't think you have to open up nafta per se in order to achieve what we are trying to achieve. there are plenty of ways for us in cooperative then we discussed a lot of them

have any sorts of comments, e-mail us, worldwide@cnbc.com is the address. first, u.s. treasury secretary jack lew is continuing his european tour with a stop in berlin and then in lisbon. it's expected he'll call on germany to do more for domestic demand. he'll expect europe to take more action on a banking union. >> we've made no secret over the years of having back stops in places. we would like to see more action taken. but i think, you know, you have to look at where things were a year and a half ago and where they are now. it's significant progress. as these mechanisms are tested, they have the capacity to grow. >> joining us now is elka bosh. thank you for joining us. it will be interesting to see whether jack lew continues what have been previous criticisms from the u.s. about germany's huge trade surplus. there's an issue here that rebalancing within the eurozone and creates a deflationary bias. do you share those concerns? >> no, i don't share them in full. i think there are some aspects worth thinking about. but i would first of all point out that the trade data at fa
